These socks just missed the August deadline for the socks a month KAL . I finished them on Sept 1st . Love the pattern , but I'm not sure if my yarn choice was the best one for it . The yarn was new to me , it's a super wash bamboo . It's very splitty and slippery to work with but the finished socks are really , really soft . These are for Mallory . I consider her our almost niece ,but actually she's our friends daughter . I've known her since she was 2 years old and she is the sweetest 14 , almost 15 , year old you could ever hope to meet . She started knitting this summer and is working on a garter stitch scarf made from some of my leftovers from various projects . She calls it the Ugly Scarf , it's so ugly its cool . It's certainly funky but in the best way . When Mallory and her mum come over she always brings her knitting and proudly shows off her progress . I think this knitting thing might just stick .
Specs on the socks :
Yarn - Happy 4ply from Wendy a UK company . It's 75% bamboo , 25 % nylon .
Pattern - Circle socks (ravelry link ) by Anne Campbell . I knit them on 2,25mm dpns .
There are some more knits to show but I'll save them for another post . I also have some stash enhancements bought in Maine , also for another post . Before I forget , thank you all so much for the good wishes for the upcoming grand baby . I'm pinching myself , I can't believe that in the new year there will be 3 little bundles to cuddle . Lucky , lucky me !
